Stage six of the 2017 Critérium du Dauphiné was the first mountainous stage of the race as it heads to a close.

The day’s stage was expected to distort the overall rankings with a beastly climb of Le Mont du Chat right before the end as the peloton rode 147.5km from Parc des Oiseaux to La Motte-Servolex.

Le Mont du Chat, otherwise known as ‘cat tooth’, has an average gradient of over 7% maxing out at around 15%, making it a great place for the GC contenders to battle it out.

The sweltering heat and severe climbing would add to what would otherwise been a tough race.

Going into the day, stage one victor Thomas De Gendt (Lotto-Soudal) clung onto his yellow jersey once more, holding a slender 27 second lead over Australian Richie Porte (BMC Racing Team) after he took the stage 4 individual time trial.

The Dauphiné continues tomorrow with the penultimate 168km stage from Aoste to the legendary Alpe d’Huez.
